Avetis Hotel

This small, cosy hotel is located in Stepanakert, five minutes from the city centre. Some tourist sites are located near the hotel.

The city of Stepanakert was built in the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the village Vararakn. It is located on the eastern side of the Artsakh Mountain Range, on the left bank of the Karakar-Vararakn River.

Stepanakert is the capital of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic and has about 55,000 inhabitants. Until 1847, it was known as Vararakn, an Armenian colony that had more than two thousand years of history.

The city is a real cultural centre. In cultural life, the Armenian drama theatre named V. Papazian plays a significant role. During the period when Nagorno-Karabakh was under the administration of Azerbaijan, all the performances on the history of the Armenian people were removed from the scene. The word "Armenian" was also systematically removed from the panel of the theatrical building. Today, the Armenian drama theatre is constantly evolving and is in close collaboration with the Yerevan theatres. Since 1959, the Armenian State Song and Dance Ensemble has played a special role in the life of the city and the entire region, as well as in Yerevan and other Armenian communities. Stepanakert radio broadcasts daily programs in Armenian for the population of the city and the entire republic, but until 1988 there were only broadcasts and programs in Azerbaijani and Russian. In the 1960s, the programs were only in Azeri and Russian. Not only all the Armenian population of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, but also the regional centre Stepanakert did not have the opportunity to watch Armenian television programs or listen to programs on the radio. At the request of Armenians in the region associated with the Artsakh Movement, the administration not only accepted Armenian television programs but also organized local television programs with the support of Armenian specialists. Currently, the television centre of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is located in Stepanakert.

The population of the city is Armenian and Christian and they continued to follow their faith of the apostolic church during the Soviet Union. Nevertheless, there was no church here until 2007. St. George's Church, built in the late nineteenth century, was demolished under Joseph Stalin in the 1930s to build the theatre building.
